Thanks for the technician's point of view.
The set I AUD seemed to be mixed lower for sure...though even in set II, the AUD was set lower than most "fan" matrixers would do it - like Chappell's version - but that's OK with me. (Some of the audience chatter was still distractingly high in the mix for my taste.)
Part of what unsettles me about an "official" matrix is that I'm buying something that's essentially the same as a homemade fan project - only perhaps without as much care to detail. The moments when I could tell the vocal or guitar was slightly phased kind of pulled me out of the show.

Anyway, I thought it was amusing that in the booklet, nowhere does it acknowledge that this release is a matrix - no discussion of Norman's methods whatsoever.

Well like allot of first things in life, this may not be the best matrix possible, first time around, but it's still quite a solid mix.

Love the Lost Sailor > Saint of Circumstance. Seems like they start off on FIRE all through the show until drums> space when they get tired and the end of the 2 nd set is mellower, but finely played.
